Add caramel (1 ounce) then add hot espresso.   Froth your milk, and use a spoon to hold back the froth as your pour the steamed milk into your cup.  Spoon over the leftover froth.  Top with fresh whipped cream, apple spice, additional caramel and a caramel apple pop.

Ingredients
Instructions
Brew two 8-ounce cups of strong coffee.  Stir in 1 tablespoon of Torani Sugar Free Pumpkin Pie Syrup  in each cup. Top with freshly whipped cream and a sprinkle of Pumpkin Pie Spice , if desired.
 
Notes
To make freshly whipped cream, simply whip 1 cup cold heavy cream in chilled metal bowl with 1 teaspoon of confectioner's sugar.  *Alternatively, if you really want to go guilt free, as an alternative to the confectioner's sugar, you can always use 1 cup heavy whipping cream + 2 tablespoons of whichever Torani Sugar Free Syrup to make flavored whipped cream. For traditional, use the vanilla flavor
